In support of Staff Assembly's mission to participate in decision-making on issues and matters of interest to staff, the UC Merced administrators contact the Staff Assembly to request nominees to serve on various campus committees. Click on the appropriate link to view the UC Merced campus committees with Staff Assembly representation. Campus committee representatives are required to understand and commit to Staff Assembly Campuswide Committee Guidelines.
As opportunities to represent staff on campus-wide committees are made know to the Executive Board, either by the conclusion of a term or by the receipt of a request for nomination of a staff representative to serve on a campus-wide committee, the Executive Board will announce a request for nominations for the open position.
The request for nominations will include: committee name, charge, composition, appointment term and meeting frequency. Members interested serving on a campus-wide committee should submit their name and a brief statement of interest in regards to serving on the committee. The Executive Board will review submissions and select an eligible Staff Assembly member via vote of the Executive Board. The Executive Board will then forward the name and statement to the committee chairperson for final confirmation.
The final conferral process resides solely with the committee, and the committee has the option to reject the Executive Board's nomination and request an alternate candidate. All candidates will be notified of the committee’s final selection. No Staff Assembly member may serve on more than one campus committee, unless an exception has been made. Executive Board members may serve on a campuswide committee.
